Bevel that real sharp edge that's in the sun, and just a slight disturbance on the water would be my take so far.

yeah the chamfer tool is your friend. everything is perfectly square, round off the edges

You sure if you are doing it for archvis purpose.
Cause the building on the right looks quite old.

Looking good. I've never seen a commercial or residential pool tiled from end to end. Pools are usually only tiled around the water line, the rest is plaster, so that's kinda killing it for me. I'm liking the lighting.

Nope. I've seen fully tiled reflection pools/fountains etc., never a swimming pool. But whatever. ;)

thanks guys, here are two small updates...

markoid/s_purs - I've beveled some edges, not sure about the water distortioon since pool water can get to be pretty much flat unless affected by wind etc.

inxa- yeah, I'm planning to animate a camera through it, just a change from the all clean looks, I'm actually planning on some unwrapping to dirty up the place some more, let's see how it goes with no tablet..

toldaddy- thanks and yeah man, they do have them tiled up, some have a 2'by2' tiles with fake mosaic in them all over..

I work for a pool company and have been using 3ds max for a little bit. I would work on achieving a better resolution on the deck texture, and not have it so reflective. I like how the trees look against the sky.. are you using 3d models or 2d images for the trees?

Also, if you are going for realism the water is too still and too clear. I found a good tutorial on how to make water here

I used that tutorial in making the following image.

Very cool I am looking forward to seeing more!

need alot bigger bevel- on the walls, door frames, etc. you cant tell its on them. and it all looks like perfect straight lines, when walls and frames arent like that in real life

edit: the main bit i was refering to i just realised is tiles on the wall for a shower. that bit stands out the worst for me- make it less perfectly rectangular somehow if possible. that bit just really stands out as cg to me

update, had a couple of days to work on this, been doing some 3D foli.. adding some props..

@Abrownbear- the deck texture might change to a stone look, working on that but not sure yet.. the trees I was using were 2D.. and as for the pool water I hear you, and thanks for the tutorial, although I remember pretty much seeing the bottom of many clean pools and also seeing pool water flat calm when no wind/users are present..

@ spurs, well I am doing some beveling and I'll get to chop up some edges using booleans a bit, but this is already taking me a lot more than I planned for it, I'm going for an animation here so I might just polish the bits that will show close on camera...

raw update: roof top where I'm setting up a lounge, stairs for animation, and overall with some beds and tables..

i guess it's something with the water..... but this still looks like a video game so good it beats out a lot of cgi to me, not cgi. idk why..... maybe they don't chamfer too much in video games to save poly count? in any case it looks amazing. i love the light shining through the trees. lol, i'm so bad at lighting i still barely have shadows worked out....
